All by Myself  (1921) 
by Irving Berlin
1921 sheet music (browse)

[Verse]

I'm so unhappy, what'll I do
I long for someone who,
Will sympathize with me;
Im growing so tired of living alone,
I lie awake all night and cry
Nobody loves me that's why.

[Chorus]

All by myself in the morning
All by myself in the night;
I sit alone in a cosy Morris chair,
So unhappy there playing solitaire
All by myself I get lonely
Watching the clock on the shelf
I'd like to rest my weary head on somebody's shoulder
I hate to grow older all by myself.

[Verse]

My name and number are in the book,
The one that hangs on a hook,
In almost every drug store;
Why don't someone bother to look,
My central tells me all day long
"Sorry the number is wrong."
